Kalin's first ride (GR Saffron)
The only thing Kalin has not liked about this new phase in her life is when we start to tighten the cinch. The first time she crow-hopped to get away from it. Now she just humps her back up a little bit. She has really been good about the bit in her mouth and is fairly willing to move out when asked. My husband will ride her a few more times and then I will climb on her. I hope she is as good for me as she has been for him.
Kalin is a "Goldsberry Colt" coming from the Goldsberry Ranch here in western North Dakota. Their horses are bred to be cow horses. I have another coming three year old, Kena, who came from the same ranch, just different bloodlines. She is a completely different horse than Kalin. Kalin has such a kind eye and Kena is more difficult to read. She seems to be a one person horse and I am that person. She is every bit as intelligent as Kalin but of the two she is the one who looks to be built for speed. It will be very enjoyable to have these two horses to ride as time goes on!
